    Snapper isn't the best choice for commercial use. But since your've got it, I'd say if the grass is wet or thick, try bringing the height up a bit & only use 1/2 of the width of the mower, using the part of the mower that is opposite of the chute!! This should get it to process the grass while letting the engine catch it's breath.

    why is it that snapper is not such a good mower?i looked at toro,ferris and exmark but thought the new snappers wer built as good.as far as service they looked easier to work on etc.i know that tor and all of the others have a better reputation.but my exmark dealer could not be trusted and the other mowers just seemed a lot higher but didn''t appear to look like that much price difference.this is my first ztr.
